The city Water Department this week began its semiannual flushing of the water system to purge it of sediments and other impurities.
City Water Supt. Al Rivier said the six-week process involves the opening of fire hydrants at intermittent points, which may cause a temporary loss of water pressure.
Rivier said the flushing process will begin in the southwest quadrant of the city bordered by El Segundo and Hawthorne boulevards and then proceed to the southwest, northwest and the northeast.
